Ohio Guidelines Discourage Traditional Trick-Or-Treating< < Back to
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio has released guidelines for Halloween that discourage traditional trick-or-treating.
The guidelines provided by the Ohio Department of Health on Friday also strongly recommend that haunted houses and hayrides be canceled.
The guidelines recommend trick-or-treating alternatives such as drive-through events with children in cars collecting treats from individuals spaced at least six feet apart.
The guidelines also suggest decorating houses and hiding treats outside.
Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine has said that decisions to allow trick-or-treating will be up to local communities.
The Health Department also says large in-person parties shouldn’t be held.
